For Montgomery County youth who have experienced abuse, neglect, and family disruption, our YouthLinks Program provides:  

  • One-on-one mentoring of youth ages of 5 to 15 who are in foster care, or at risk of being removed from their home 
  • Volunteer mentor youth development trainings 
  • Fun mentor/mentee activities such as horseback riding, picnics, art workshops, college visits
YouthLinks is a collaborative partnership between YMCA-Youth and Family Services and Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services-Child Welfare.  The mentoring program provides one-on-one, community-based, trauma-informed mentoring.
